Hello and welcome to CricketCountry’s live blog of the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at the historic Eden Gardens, Kolkata. I am Rishad DSouza and I will be bringing all the updates of this match 38 of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2015 here. Preview: KKR vs SRH eye crucial 2 points

This is the second match between these two teams in this season’s IPl 2015. Last time when KKR and SRH played, the Hyderabad team came out as the victorious team. This time, the host, KKR have had a patchy IPL 2015 so far. At times they have looked too strong and won games easily but on some occasions they have missed out on winning close games. But now, after their last defeat against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in rain effected match, the time for experimentation is over and now they need to win games to keep themselves in the hunt for the playoff stage. Ryan ten Doeschate admits that pressure will be on Kolkata Knight Riders going further in the tournament

SRH on the other hand are playing an attacking cricket of-late. Their bowling and batting, both have clicked in the right time. In bowling Trent Boult is going to be their main weapon. Others like of Bhuvneshwar Kumar,  MoisesHenriques, Parveen Kumar will play the supporting role. The death bowling of Bhuvneshwar and Parveen have been excellent so far. It was only because of them, SRH managed to beat KKR in their last encounter at Visakhapatnam. They will be required to play a vital role again, to stop the strong KKR batting. David Warner blitz, bowlers earn SRH a crucial win against CSK

Squads:

Kolkata Knight Riders: Gautam Gambhir (c), Sunil Narine, Manish Pandey, Robin Uthappa, Umesh Yadav, Yusuf Pathan, Andre Russell, Ryan ten Doeschate, Shakib Al Hasan, Kuldeep Yadav, Morne Morkel, Azhar Mahmood, Johan Botha, KC Cariappa, Piyush Chawla, Pat Cummins, Aditya Garhwal, Brad Hogg, Sheldon Jackson, Sumit Narwal, Veer Pratap Singh, Vaibhav Rawal, Suryakumar Yadav.
